Creating Sub-user

Last updated: 2021-08-04 16:06:30

    Overview

    If you are a sub-account with admin permissions (AdministratorAccess) or full access to CAM (QcloudCamFullAccess) and have purchased CVM, VPC, COS, and other Tencent Cloud resources, you can create one or more sub-accounts for your team members and allow them to access your resources.

    This document describes how to use the admin account to create a sub-user in the CAM console and bind the sub-user to a permission policy.

    Note:

    Both sub-users and collaborators are sub-accounts. For related definitions and permission descriptions, please see User Types.
